From Chiapas to South Africa, from Egypt to Greece and Spain, from El Barrio, NYC to Occupy Wall St., together we have shown that “dignity,” “justice,” and “democracy” are not concepts to be imagined, but realities we must live and nourish.

Those from above- the 1%- who attempt to control our lives and plunder our world feed off our divisions as a people.

True liberation means knocking down hierarchies, and building a new world from the bottom up.

To do this we must engage in the most powerful form of rebellion: Listening to all those from below.

We invite you to our corner of the world, East Harlem (El Barrio), a neighborhood and community that has organized and fought back against oblivion for years, to join us in the NYC Encuentro for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism.

An Encuentro is a moment of human exchange and reflection; it is a gathering. An Encuentro is not a meeting, a panel or a conference; it is a way of sharing developed by the Zapatistas as another form of doing politics: from below and to the left. It is a place where we can all speak, we will all listen, and we can all learn. It is a place where we can share the many different struggles that make us one.
